The rumour of Buhari and Osinbajo’s rift went overdrive after the President dropped his deputy as head of the government economic team, relieved him (Osinbajo) of some of the MDAs under him with reports that a section of his aides were dismissed by the presidency.

It was also said that the cabal were allegedly behind Osinbajo’s ordeal but the president has again rubbished insinuation that all was not well between them.

This time around in an interview with The Interview, Buhari described their relationship as “Perfect” saying “Or has he complained to you? Thank you very much.”

He also claimed there was nothing like cabal, according to him: “I addressed this matter before. I was the one who went round the country on campaigns, and I was the one voted into office as President twice.

“No one else did, and no one else took the oath of office, and can exercise the powers of a President.”
